March 8 is International Women’s Day—a day celebrating achievements of women worldwide. The first affiliated event for this was in 1911, making 2011 the 100th anniversary. I think I only learned about it a year or two ago. Sometimes it seems that every day is some “day” or other, but I think this is one we should all know about and celebrate.
I feel blessed to know so many amazing, inspirational, strong, beautiful women. For one, my mother never ceases to impress me with the grace, humor and strength she exudes. On this International Women’s Day, I want to share some photos of some of the women I know that I only wish all could know.
